    Ha yeah, I'm in the middle of writing a massive essay for the travel bit but trying not to waffle; but regarding pre game, I had mentioned Kitty's is it, the Irish bar over near Maria Cristina, she looked up some places to go & found it too and was like yeah let's go there. So on the metro she was umming and arrring as we drew closer & closer, then bottled it and said let's go to that local bar I had pointed out on the Friday on the walk from Les Corts. Got there, nope. Walked further and found another bar, the one we actually went into. Nope. She wanted to then follow some bint who had a horrendously fake Barça top on over towards the North goal to which she even said there was nothing there but let's go anyway - logic?

    Ended up walking to the megastore and saw loads of fans lining the road for the arrival of the players who eventually came after about 30mins but spaced a part 5-10mins. Saw a white Audi A5 with tinted windows, no clue who it was but then saw a black Aston Martin, again tinted windows with some yank going "Oh my gaawwwd an Assstin Mertun" with randoms saying it's Pique. Madness as people ran into the road pretty much blocking whoever's path it was, taking pictures as he some how managed to push through. Was so cringe worthy, felt sorry for them and heart in mouth moment that a) the car didn't get bumped, b) no one got hurt, c) driver didn't smack into the 4x4 waiting just on the road. Ridiculous.

    Hilarious moment was when we got in there I walked into the "gents" as labelled but there was a woman washing her hands and I instantly turn around a bit befuddled. Then my Mrs goes to the "ladies" as labelled, and whilst I'm waiting 2 separate groups of men almost went in so I turned into a steward and directed them in the right direction XD pissing myself laughing.

    So the 'gents' had a woman in it and the 'ladies' had two blokes in it. At that point you just say 'fuck it' and just walk where you please

    DonAK. Add to the manifesto "properly labelled toilets at all FCB facilities".

    PS. Don't steal the idea Bojan. That is the sort of policy that wins elections.

    The blokes almost went in, it was only when I stopped them and told them it's 2 down. The first pair were Spanish or Catalan as well. The next were some Russian or Polish. Was mad, but yeah you're right. If my Mrs wasn't in there I'd just leave them to it lmao

    Appalled. Absolutely disgusted with socis in Manchester that have plenty of tickets and are selling them for 200 or even 250 pounds each! to other Barca fans. If I've known I will get the chance to attend the game I would've applied for tickets. The club even returned many tickets back to City!!

    No way. That's an utter disgrace! Both the socis selling them & the club. Really would have loved to have been in amongst the Barça lot.

    When we were at the Camp Nou other week though and I imagine it's a common thing, you have people outside trying to offer you tickets ON MATCH DAY a couple of hours from KO, a lot of them too and so blatant about it. I mean, seriously though, what are they thinking, we had Barça shirts on... walking to the gates... kind of obvious we're actually attending the game lol

    Could be a cause of the empty seats if enough of these tits have the actual seats & aren't selling them. Although I suspect they're fake?

    I never understand people selling them outside the nou camp.

    When there is thousands of tickets always available on the website.

    I got this from another site.

    'Season ticket holders to FC Barcelona can only ever give their ticket back to the club, or maintain that ticket with the surname. So many older generation season ticket holders, simply hold on to their relatives' season tickets and sell on these seats on match day. Let me explain. Say my father and his 4 brothers were all season ticket holders, but of those 5 siblings, only 1 had children (me). I would renew those season tickets each year, due to their privileged location within the stands, and simply turn up 30 minutes before kick off each home game and sell on those tickets for face price, with the guarantee of having better view than the box office tickets and probably paying off my own season tickets from the profits by the end of the season. This is perfectly legal within the eyes of the club and the governing bodies of football, as long as money doesn't change hands. So those clever OAP's you see hanging around the metro station are the ones with the best tickets! The security guards at the turnstiles know the score, but as long as they haven't seen money changing hands, then its fine by them. This is the best way to get tickets for the match, as you are effectively escorted in by the seller (you will sit next to them), so no security risks with regards fake tickets. It does however, have its risks in that if anyone sees you pay for the ticket, then you run the risk of losing your money and the ticket. '

    Think about it though, you only get 50% of the ticket value when you resell your season ticket through the website, the club gets the other 50%.

    As I mentioned above ticket holders renew the tickets with their surname on them so if you have 4 season tickets you could sell 3 through the website or else hope to sell them outside the stadium. You could have really good seats and sell at a 25% discount so the buyer gets good seats at a 25% reduced rate while you get 25% more than you would have through the website.
